Brew CIty’s homegrown producer Monsta Mynd is new to The Illixer and to a lot of ears. The 28 year-old beat-smith has been crafting instrumentals for a couple of years now and he is looking to take that next step by letting people know that …. well, he’s got a few bangers! With influences from Kanye West to Jim Jonsin, he is definitely off to a good start sound wise. In that same model of artistic exploration like the greats before him, Monsta Mynd took an interesting approach to his new Dope Beats Vol. 1 beat tape. For this snack-sized 10 track project, Monsta sampled OVER 100 songs (that’s 10 plus unique samples PER completed record). Let’s take a closer look at this ambitious project.

From the beginning there are three things you must know about U.K. producer Scott Xylo: he loves retro & classic gaming, he is a cartoon connoisseur, and he uses the former two addictions as his main inspiration when crafting music. Utilizing the internet to the fullest, the Leicester born beatsmith is slowly making waves on an international level. He is a part of the Divine Atoms crew as well as L.A. based Japanese infused Gin-Yu Clan. To top it off he’s joined beats-focused label Piramd Records out of Mexico and releases music through the unique internet housed label Senzu Art Collective. Mr. Xylo is indeed on his global grind and the hustle continues with his latest release 2003 // HeERO Scott. The beat tape has an underlining concept of Scott finding his old recorded Toonami tapes from 2003 and going back to re-watch them.
